Trivia

The production was broadcast live to mirror A for Andromeda (1961). The same was true of The Quatermass Experiment (2005), which was a remake of The Quatermass Experiment (1953). Both A for Andromeda (1961) and The Quatermass Experiment (1953) are acclaimed BBC science fiction serials which are largely missing from the archives. See more »

Absolutely awful pseudoscience and wretched acting
27 March 2006 | by paulj-murphySee all my reviews

Any schoolboy would be ashamed of the scientific mistakes in this. For example, the team send radio messages to Andromeda and get immediate replies! Andromeda is millions of light years away and so any radio signals would take millions of years to get there and back! Also, at one point in the story a technician saves a genome or record of the entire genetic code of a human being on a single floppy disk! Fred Hoyle would be rotating in his grave.

The acting is equally bad. The two male leads are the "geekiest" type of anoraks one could possibly hope not to meet, and they are as wet as they come. Neither speak their lines clearly. And the Army General is about as nonmilitary as you could get...he looks like your average window cleaner.

Please please please just go back to making them the way they originally did in the sixties, BBC...
